Estadio Benito Villamarin – Sevilla
Forced to play in the sweltering heat in a new midday time slot, the first half between Betis and Mallorca was surprisingly dramatic as both created interesting chances, including Betis hitting the post three times in their quest to secure their first home win.
Mallorca played a more defensive game and were fortunate to not have conceded a penalty in the first half as they attempted to restrain the newly-promoted side.
Both teams eventually lost their fight against the dire heat in the second half and play inevitably slowed down. Yet despite the drop in pace, Betis still managed to grab a well-deserved goal four minutes from time to keep them at the top of the League and boasting yet another clean sheet.
Real Betis (4-2-3-1): Casto; Chica, Amaya, Dorado, Nacho; Iriney, Be
